Cranberry Mimosa with Orange
Let’s be honest, a big part of the holiday’s is enjoying festive drinks together with friends and family. In order to do both (but still maintain some kind of health), we fell absolutely in love with this recipe. It’s the perfect light spritzer to get in the holiday mood without indulging in the calorie count.

Crescent Dough Cinnamon Rolls
If you celebrate Christmas, then you know that unwrapping presents is normally a big ordeal. It can take anywhere from a couple of minutes to a couple of hours. With it taking place in the morning, breakfast is usually the first request from all of your friends and family. Without hesitation, this breakfast is one that is loved by EVERYONE, and that’s not an exaggeration. This is one of those holiday recipes you can’t skimp on.

One-Pan Cranberry Balsamic Roasted Chicken
This chicken is the exact opposite of dry. It’s filled with flavor, color, and antioxidants! Believe it or not, this holiday recipe is completely paleo-friendly and (our favorite part) only takes ONE PAN!!

Apple Butter Thumbprint Cookies
Apple Butter Thumbprint Cookies is one of our favorite holiday recipes and definitely a go-to. They are so fun to make with your family and friends and just taste like fall and winter. This is definitely our comfort cookie for the season (yes, we just made that a thing).

We saved the best for last. This pie is creamy, smooth, sweet (but not too sweet), and absolutely to die for. If you’re also planning your wedding for the season, this is a great dessert to add to your winter wedding! However, one downside is that your guests will love it so much it’ll fly off the tray. You’ll have to make more than one if you want a piece!
